Wow! Did you feel that blue moon energy?! This was a HUGE emotional release. Don’t know about you, but I spent much of Saturday and Sunday crying. Often not knowing why! Hence the reason this Tarotscope is a few days late. There is so much going on with our planetary systems and I can feel the frenetic and chaotic buzz. Can you? As we begin November our systems might be slightly out of whack, but it’s simply the effects of transformation. This is a month of tremendous growth and change. “Ugh,” you think, “More change?” I promise this shift will be a lot less painful than the rest of the nonsense we’ve dealt with in 2020. Let’s pause and reflect on how far we’ve come! This year has really shown us our strengths, illuminated our weaknesses and forced us to look at all the shadow work we’ve been putting on the shelf for quite some time. #Growth
November always reminds me of the power of gratitude. When you start to go down the rabbit hole of fear remember to reach out and grab the hand of your Higher Power or Higher Self. Also slow down as best you can and try to drop into the moment. Repeat after me: “I am safe. I am loved. I am protected. I am loved.” We can’t control very much. 2020 has brought this false belief to light in so many ways! Our routines give us comfort and help us think we have it all under control. “Ha!” says this monstrosity of a year! Don’t lose hope for the good news is that what we can control, and always control, is our thoughts. And interestingly enough, our thoughts are what shapes our reality. Play with that notion a bit this month. When you start to spin out just remember that we’re all just in a vivid dream, a 3D reality that connects our collective unconscious in shape and form. You have the power and the wisdom of the Magician deep inside of you. Wake him or her up! It’s time to come out and play! It’s time to start manifesting the life of your dreams.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 20) – Three of Cups
You, a workaholic? No, never! Ha! Capricorn you’ve been working hard and the Spirits recognize your efforts. Now is the time to put down the pencil and pick up the glass as you say “Cheers.” You’ve seem to have forgotten that life isn’t only about work. We work to live…not the other way around. This is a time to reconnect with friends and family. We are all experiencing a bit of Covid fatigue and I don’t know about you, but some days I’m Zoomed out! Here are some suggestions to help you remain in touch: write a handwritten note (bonus points for stickers or smelly markers), call someone on the phone (yes, get old school), or offer to go grocery shopping for someone who is high risk and drop it at their doorstep. Heck, maybe you two can communicate through a screen door for a few minutes. The Three of Cups is the card of friendship. It indicates our needs for community, now more than ever. Reach out and show up. Not only will it warm your heart, but it’ll add to your spiritual development.
Aquarius (Jan 21-Feb 19) – Ace of Cups
Oooh how dreamy Aquarius! This is a month filled with love for you! You fall in love with life again and more importantly you fall back in love with yourself. Perhaps you’ve lost a job, are financially strapped, or simply just anxious about the future. It has you beating yourself up extremely hard! Never forget that you are not alone! You are doing a great job and the Guides want you to know they are proud of you! In November you’ll start to feel like yourself a bit more. I encourage you to indulge in things that make you happy. Bike riding, jigsaw puzzles, drawing, reading a book, bird watching, sunset gazing and buying yourself flowers are all suggested. I want you to woo yourself so intensely that you start to forget about your woes. Don’t only do this for yourself, but for others around you. Little things go a long way. Maybe it’s time to pay for the person behind you in the Starbucks drive thru? The Ace of Cups is love’s new beginnings. I dare you to spread as much love as possible this month!
Pisces (Feb 20-Mar 20) – Eight of Crystals
Oh dear Goddess, Pisces. Things really have fallen to pieces, haven’t they. I’m holding space for you in my heart. Please know that this was all divinely inspired. Maybe you’re like “Hell no! The universe did NOT want my friend to die. God does not want me to be destitute. The Guides do NOT want me to live in constant fear!” Well I hate to break it to you, but none of this is true except the last one. We don’t get to know why people pass away. I heard a priest (not religious at all) say “God wanted them back because he needed them.” That resonated. I hope it does for you to. I want you to put down the pity party and pick up acceptance. The sooner the better. The Divine has wiped the slate clean in many a regard to make way for better things. The Eight of Crystals is all about your gifts. They were not being put to good use in the old paradigm. You are asked to use this “great pause” to cultivate your talents and show them to the world. Not sure what that is yet? It’s a beautiful time to explore. Perhaps start with calling friends, “What am I good at?” The answers may shock you!
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – Ten of Cups
Aries we are all watching the swirling chaos with complete unease, and there you sit on your throne, cool as a cucumber. Doesn’t shock me as you’ve mastered emotional sobriety long ago. Your ego can sometimes get the best of you, but not now. There is a part deep within you that truly understands that it’s all going to be ok. Actually, it IS ok. I want you to take this inner knowing and spread that truth to as many people you know. You are their lighthouse in this storm. What are ways in which you can show up for people that matter to you? I’d offer you suggestions, but this time you’re on your own. I think you’ve done some huge growth this year and I know you’ll use this opportunity to put others first. It’ll offer you emotional fulfillment that you didn’t know was possible.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – The Wheel of Fortune (Rx)
Sweet Taurus, you’ve really dug your horns into the ground, no? You are deeply mourning the loss of the life you once knew and the waves of grief are washing over you like a tsunami. It’s time to shift your perspective. The Wheel of Fortune in reverse means that you have forgotten your superpower: manifestation. Thoughts truly become things. Perhaps everything was stripped away so you can pause and reflect on what you really want out of this lifetime. Let’s be honest. Your journey felt a little empty at times. Now it’s your moment to begin again, this time with renewed hope and optimism. Sometimes things need to break apart so things can fall together. Stop focusing on the negatives and break out the gratitude journal. It’s time to start recognizing the abundance that surrounds you. I think guided meditation will help you tremendously. Try an app on your phone. I happen to like the app called Calm, but I hear wonderful things about Headspace as well. You need to start dropping back into your body, into the here and now. For in this moment, in this breath, you are safe, you are protected and you are oh, so loved.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – Seven of Crystals
Well if there were awards for growth in 2020 I know you’d get a medal my dear Gemini. You’ve faced every single one of your challenges head on, and with ease and grace I might add! You might not have felt that calmness inside, but how you showed up when things went awry is quite impressive. I want you to get out of your head and into your heart. Instead of beating yourself up for not being further along, why not pause instead and take a moment to reflect. Break out a piece of paper and write down all the adversities we’ve been up against this year: global pandemic, humans rights crisis, murder hornets, wildfires. Now in the second column I want to write about how each of these events affected you personally. In the last column put down all the ways in which you showed up to each challenge. When you Zoom out to see the larger picture I think it’ll be a helpful exercise. You’ll recognize you aren’t in this world, that many have grievances far worse than yours and that you have what it takes to get through anything. Good things lie ahead. Have faith.
Cancer (Jun 22-July 23) – Four of Cups
Ouch Cancer! Financial fear is taking over your head space big time. Please let go! Goddess has got you. The Four of Cups is always a warning that we are holding on a bit too tightly. We think if we hold on tighter we’ll be able to control the situation. Nothing could be further from the truth! The only thing you are doing is blocking yourself from the flow. I think this might be a good time for you to create a vision board. Cut out pictures, words and phrases that make you happy. Paste them to a posterboard and step back to have a look. What exists in your life right now? Maybe it doesn’t look picture perfect, but it’s here nonetheless. What is missing? Use this information to start moving towards your goals, step-by-step. I think it’s really interesting that sometimes our faith in the universe is restored when everything else is stripped away. Faith is all we have left. I believe this is where the Guides have led you, so that you start to believe once again. The angels are always around you. You can ask for help at any time. Your conundrum is the thought that you have to do it all alone. Impossible! The bravest thing you could ever do is ask for help.
Leo (Jul 24 – Aug 23) – Seven of Swords (Rx)
Leo you love some good drama, some good vibrato, especially when all eyes are you. However if we really get down to it, you never really show people the real you. They only get the version you think they’ll like and applaud. The Seven of Swords reversed is a divine plea to get you to show your more vulnerable side. Lay all your cards on the table. Admit to the three day old pajamas, acknowledge your sleep issues, open up about your fears. When you let the world see the real you that’s when all the magic starts to creep in. While opening up about something that perhaps creates self-blame or shame, it can often feel as terrifying as jumping off a cliff. Sure, you open yourself up to ridicule or criticism. However, you also open yourself up to deep, endless love. Most are astounded by your vulnerability and bravery. It encourages them to open up as well. You help others heal when you cast light on the “broken” bits. None of us are perfect. When we let go of the mirage and offer the behind the scenes look at our lives that is where connection is made. And that connection is always divine.
Virgo (Aug 24-Sep 22) – The Chariot (Rx)
Virgo in case no one has told you today: you are beautiful, you are smart and you are amazing! You’ve been stuck inside too long and now have started to get a bit too cozy with the negative thoughts in your head. It’s hard because these evil thoughts are speaking in your voice! Those are all false beliefs and you’re buying into the delusion. I think it’s time to start recognizing your strengths. Kat Williams has created The Confidence Club (I promise I’m not an affiliate). One of the exercises she gives her students is to write down 100 things they like about themselves. Not what you think others like about you, but what you truly cherish about how you show up in the world. I strongly recommend that you give this application a go. You’ve been feeling stuck, as indicated by The Chariot in reverse. Let’s get you unstuck! You can’t use the same resources to solve a problem that created it in the first place. This is why we need to uncover all your assets and help you step back into your power. You got this!
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22) – Knight of Wands (Rx)
You’re usually a beacon of bright light dear Libra! Unfortunately, as indicated by the Knight of Wands in reverse, you’re feeling a bit blue. You’re feeling defeated and it’s affecting your self-confidence. What if you truly surrendered to the defeat? What does that mean? Well I find the more I truly open up and wave the white flag, the quicker help greets me. Lost a job? Let your friends know. Better yet announce it to the world on social media. Feeling overwhelmed because the kids are home from school and aren’t getting anything done? Start a search for a part-time nanny that’s as mindful about this pandemic as you are. Not sure which way to go next? Stop dreading the unknown and embrace it with childlike wonder. I think you’ll benefit greatly from Magical Mornings, an exercise created by Gala Darling. She encourages you to find a Magical Morning Partner. Each morning you send each other voice memos (I do mine on Whatspp). You state: 1) Gratitude – Acknowledging the magic in your life, 2) Desires – What will happen today (State it like you already did) and 3) Pie in the Sky – Choose a time in the future and describe your perfect life. Try this for the next 30 days. Let’s see what card you pull for December. If you are practicing this daily you’ll start to see enormous positive shifts in your life, faster than one might expect.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 22) – Three of Swords
It’s Scorpio season and we all know what that means. It’s time to dive in and go deep. However pulling the Three of Swords indicates to me that you’ve been taking this self-appraisal stuff a bit too far. Acknowledging your weaknesses is always a process of self-growth, but be sure not to use this as a way to beat yourself up. You’ve also uncovered some harsh truths lately that have been hard to swallow. I encourage you let yourself feel your feelings, before moving into solution. Don’t wallow too long. You have never been afraid of the dark, but remember dear Scorpio, life is all about balance. What can you do to see the lighter side of life? I think this month you’ll be going through a type of transformation that feels much like a snake shedding it’s skin. It might be extremely uncomfortable and at times heart-breaking, but you’re making way for a new beginning. One where you live in a heart-centered space and bring that brilliance into your everyday life.
Sagittarius (Nov 23-Dec 20) – The Emperor (Rx)
The divine masculine has long been out of whack with the divine feminine, we’re talking centuries if not millenia. Take time to pull apart these concepts. What does it mean to be a man in today’s world? How far has that skewed from the truth? What if it was really manly to be soft and kind? Nurturing? Protective? Disciplined? Fair? Soft-spoken? How can you offer space to men in your life who have been traumatized by the false beliefs our society has created? What would it look like if you opened your heart and offered compassion to men stuck in their ‘mainstream’ ideologies? How can you honor your Divine Feminine and love the Divine Masculine wholly and completely? WIthout resentment? How can you forgive all persons on the planet? How can you forgive yourself? Next time someone tries to mansplain all over you take a moment to recognize his dis-ease. He is trying to overcompensate for a world that insists he show up in a very specific way in order to have purpose. Help him recognize his mistake in the best way possible: by offering him the nurturing bosom of the divine feminine. Don’t ridicule, simply educate. And remind him, and yourself, that you are loved.
